In 1992, Matt Hasselbeck was an honorable mention high school All-America quarterback in Westwood, Mass. He was about to realize his dreams of sun, fun, California girls -- and wide-open, Pac-10 football. Hasselbeck had verbally committed to a scholarship offer from then-UCLA coach Terry Donahue. But before he signed, he went to Chestnut Hill, Mass., and the Boston College campus. Mostly, the short trip was to appease his father, Don, an NFL tight end for nine seasons.

Coach Jim Fassel knew what was coming. He would be fired after a season that began with Super Bowl hopes but turned into an embarrassment. So, he figured, why wait? He asked the New York Giants to announce his firing now and allow him to coach the final two games of the season. They agreed. "It's time. They need a change, I need a change. It's the right thing to do," Fassel said Wednesday. After weeks of speculation about his future, Fassel requested a meeting with the owners Tuesday.

An Arkansas judge Tuesday dismissed a large part of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s multimillion-dollar lawsuit against former Vice Chairman Tom Coughlin, saying the parties had agreed not to sue each other over events that happened during Coughlin's tenure. Wal-Mart said it would amend its lawsuit and try again to void Coughlin's retirement deal. It said Coughlin negotiated a lavish deal last year knowing he had misused $500,000 in Wal-Mart cash and property.
